1963

The Easy-Bake Oven debuted in 1963 as the world’s first functional toy oven. The turquoise toy was invented by Kenner Products -- later bought by Hasbro – and featured a carrying handle and pretend stovetop. It sold for $15.95. Five years later, it became a household name. In 1968, Betty Crocker collaborated with Easy-Bake to create miniature boxed mixes for the mini oven. This allowed kids to make their own small versions of Devil’s food cake and Bisquick pancakes.

1971

When avocado green became the trendiest color in kitchens across America, Easy-Bake followed suit and introduced three toys to match the real thing: the Premier Easy-Bake oven, the floral patterned Contemporary Easy-Bake Oven and the Super Easy-Bake Oven that made cakes twice as large as before with the help of double size slide-through pans. Easy-Bake sold over five million ovens in 1971.

To celebrate a decade of success in the market, Easy-Bake released a stylish “poppy red” oven that featured tartan details. Easy-Bake released more accessories from 1974 to 1977 including the Easy-Bake Potato Chip Maker, the Easy-Bake Pizza Maker and the Easy-Bake Baking and Decorating Set, which allowed the little bakers to add frosting to their Easy-Bake products.

1979

When microwave ovens made their way into households, the Easy-Bake Oven implemented a redesign that made it look like a real microwave, but remained the same product otherwise. This new mini microwave was called The Mini-Wave and it baked cakes, cookies and other snacks more efficiently than any Easy-Bake had before it.

1996

To allow little bakers to make desserts and drinks, the Easy-Bake Mix n’ Make Center came out in 1996. It was the only kitchen toy with a functional mixer and blender. When Easy-Bake celebrated its 35th birthday in 1998, it began a search for the Easy-Bake “Baker of the Year,” which began at the 95th American International Toy Fair in New York. Nine year-old Lindsey Thompson was bestowed with the first award for her recipe called “Toffee Trifle Cake.”

2003

The Easy-Bake turned 40 years old in 2003 and created the Easy-Bake Real Meal oven to celebrate the accomplishment. This oven allowed bakers to make an appetizer, dinner and dessert in one oven, and for the first time the Easy-Bake didn’t require a bulb, just a plug. In the same year Easy-Bake released The Easy-Bake Oven Gourmet, which featured 32 original recipes from culinary celebs like Bobby Flay, Mark Bittman and Rick Bayless.

2011

In 2011, Easy-Bake officially retired the light bulb technology and instead began using a heating element similar to a traditional oven. This heating element was implemented in a model called the Easy-Bake Ultimate Oven and it provided more space in the cooking chamber so kids would have the opportunity to make more tasty treats.
